I'm attending my first AHL game tonight as the Houston Aeros take on the Binghamton Senators. I recently learned that the Aeros are the primary affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, but Dallas has had a temporary affiliation agreement (as with several other teams until the Texas Stars begin play). I was wondering which, if any, Stars-controlled players are currently on their roster? Is there a reason why the Aeros never became a primary affiliate of the Stars organization? I'm aware of some related history as Tippet was head coach and David Oliver played during their 1999 Turner Cup Championship season. Also, if anyone is looking for a reason to make it out to the Toyota Center tonight, it's mullet night.
